Daily we recite or hear the proclamation of the  Greatness and Power of Allah Ta‘ala  more than a hundred times. In the azaan, salaah and at other times, we keep repeating ALLAHU AKBAR... ALLAHU AKBAR ... ALLAHU AKBAR. This is a constant reminder throughout the day that ALLAH TA‘ALA IS THE GREATEST. He Alone controls everything and has total qudrat and power over every minute particle.

Presently, Allah Ta‘ala’s qudrat (absolute power and control) is being manifested through a microscopic virus which has brought most of the world to almost a standstill. Subhaanallah! Pure is that Being to Whom belongs the entire universe. He Alone is the creator of every living being and every inanimate object. He causes the sun to rise and the moon to shine. Glory be to Allah Ta‘ala who gives life and death and Who will resurrect everyone on the Day of Judgement.

Q: The Covid-19 pandemic has gripped the world. Please advise as to what we should do in these trying times.

A: AIndeed these are very trying times. In trying times, one must not remain casual and carefree. A carefree and heedless attitude in such situations is in fact dangerous, as it indicates indifference to Allah Ta‘ala. While it is necessary to take the necessary precautions within the limits of sharee‘ah, that alone is not going to take away the virus. There is much more to do. Hereunder are some aspects to undertake in order to treat the root of the issue:

Shed Tears before Allah Ta‘ala

Repent… repent… and sincerely repent. Shun all sin. Repeatedly make deep, heartfelt taubah and istighfaar, and shed tears of remorse and regret. Allah Ta‘ala has declared in the Quraan Majeed: “Indeed Allah loves those who constantly repent...”. (Surah Baqarah, v.222) Rasululah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has said: “The one who cries out of the fear of Allah Ta‘ala will not enter the Fire”. (Sunan Tirmizi #1633) If all of us repent sincerely, the rahmah and blessings of Allah Ta‘ala will descend upon everyone and the hardships will insha-Allah be uplifted.

Letter:

Bismihi Ta‘ala

Respected Mufti Saheb

As salaamu ‘alaikum

For some time now, a strange condition has overcome me. My nafs (the carnal-self) dominates me. I have a strong inclination to sin and this leaves me extremely restless. The thought continuously passes my mind as to what my condition will be at the time of death and after death. The world seems to be full of sorrow for me. After trying so much to save myself from sin, I still fall into sin. I request your du‘aas and advice to remedy my situation.

Inspirational Advice

Every Cloud has a Silver Lining

There was once a pious man, living (with his family) in the wilderness. They had a dog, donkey and rooster. The rooster would awake them for salaah, the donkey would be used to carry their water and grain etc., and the dog would guard and protect them.

One day, a fox arrived and snatched away the rooster, causing his family to grieve over its loss. However, since the man was a pious man, his response was, “Perhaps there is some good in what transpired.”

After some time had passed, a wolf arrived and attacked the donkey, splitting open its belly and killing it. They grieved over the loss of the donkey, but the pious man once again responded saying, “Perhaps there is some good in what transpired.”

Some time later, the dog also died, and once again, the pious man’s response was, “Perhaps there is some good in what transpired.”
